So, I have this idea.
Maybe it's a dumb idea. But I think it could be fun.
In the same way artists do drawing jams to practice, based upon a surprise weekly subject, I think it would be a blast to do a weekly 'short-story jam.'
Every week, round-robin selection of a subject, and one week to write a short story on the chosen subject. The subject should be brief, but evocative enough to drive a story.
Stories should be between 2,000 and 8,000 words, maybe.
At the end of the week, everybody kicks in their story, we read 'em, maybe crit 'em, and have the fun of seeing how somebody else interpreted the same subject.
So, for example - let's say the subject is....
Woman Wakes Inside A White Sphere With A Cat
Twin Discovers His Brother Is A Murderer
If so, I could set up a blogger site for submissions.
